Many thanks for those shaders and brushes!

The marble material and render settings rock! Thanks for sharing
I am rendering a marble model right now
The shader is looking awesome Julian, thanks for taking the time!
Btw, where both one post away from 1K, haha!
New Sketchbook! (with a new free skull on page 1!)
Nice shader! I know how to make a matcap, but how exactly do make a shader in zbrush?
well, depending on how complex you want it to be, you pick either one of the standard tri or quad shaders and then start by tweaking those slots already there or copy and past from other shaders whatever looks closest to what you are aiming for.Originally Posted by Derek Frenzo
in essence you don't make anything from scratch but tweak what is there. however, that can sometimes be so tedious and time consuming that you can actually call it your own creation
Or even better, wait Julian's new shader and tweak this.
Don't forget to say thank you.
OK I'm joking. There's a reason to have ready shaders and not multiple exports-combinations. Is to sculpt using them. Its important for an artist to sculpt in marble or bronze-like preview. To see faked reflections when cutting a face.
Thank you Julian, another great shader from you.
here's a revsion 2 of the marble shader(previous post). It has an improved sss shader, among other minor tweaks.
see the looong sheet at the end of the post for crucial settings to be considered.
I must say I am really quite happy with this shader because it does what I intended it to do quite well. It gives you a one click out of the box BPR render that looks pretty good for a quick render without any compositing of passes afterwards.
have a look at the sample renders I did, with various settings ( explained below).I also included the light setup I used here in the attached file.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Especially with the sss applied. Again, thanks so much for sharing the shaders and the breakdowns
